Services

Quest serves individuals at all stages of life. No two people Quest serves are alike, but what they do have in common is the fact that with a little help, with a few choices and opportunities, living a better life is possible. Using Quest’s core competencies of providing behavioral therapy and programming, Quest helps people with disabilities as young as 15 months to well over the age of 80 achieve their dreams of going to school, having a job, living on their own and experiencing summer camp.

Below is a listing of all of the services available at Quest. You can also learn more about our services through our service guide, Unite Us: A Comprehensive Guide of Services.

   

Quest Kids
Quest Kids provides therapy services to children with autism, developmental delays, learning differences, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, chromosomal abnormalities and other learning and behavior concerns. Through the use of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Quest Kids develops an individualized plan for each child to improve language, self-care, social skills and academics, while addressing and minimizing problem behaviors such as aggression, self-injury and property destruction.

Quest Kids Academy
As a natural extension of the Quest Kids therapy program, Quest Kids Academy is a McKay scholarship-eligible private school that offers a unique combination of a state-approved curriculum and behavior therapy services in small student-teacher ratios - something that can’t be offered by public schools - allowing for more individualized attention.

Adult Day Training (ADT) Program
At Quest’s ADT program, individuals have the opportunity to learn and apply job skills that prepare them for the responsibilities they would face in an outside workplace. Given activities that match their physical capabilities, employees perform direct mail, fulfillment, packaging, sorting, assembly and other projects for companies like AAA and Walt Disney World.

The ADT centers in Orlando and Tampa also offer meaningful day activities for individuals with disabilities to improve functionality and skill development. Emphasis is placed on communication, computer skills, creative arts, domestic skills, music appreciation, vocational skills and more.

Employment Services
Quest’s employment services provide opportunities for people to work either as part of a small group or individually in the community at companies such as OUC and SeaWorld. The program identifies realistic job opportunities for career placement, while employment specialists develop plans for success and provide ongoing support as needed. The comprehensive program incorporates vocational evaluation, job development, job coaching, follow-along services and travel training.

Residential Program
Intermediate Care Facilities (ICFs) located in Orlando and Tampa cater to the most medically fragile individuals and provide residents with round-the-clock nursing care in the comfort of a home setting. ICFs give residents access to an extensive support system that includes physical, speech and occupational therapy.

Group homes are houses located in typical neighborhoods throughout Orlando and Tampa and are designed to serve people with disabilities in need of continued support for daily living. Six to 12 individuals live in each home with 24-hour staff, giving residents the opportunity for continued skill training and increased independence. Our group homes in Tampa specialize in serving children with autism as well as children and adults with significant behavioral and medical needs.

Quest also provides transitional living environments for people who are very independent but still need regular access to staff support for help with daily activities, such as shopping, cooking, bill paying and cleaning. Individuals in Orlando live in a one or two-bedroom apartment either alone or with one to two roommates.

Adults who live independently in the Orlando community can still receive ongoing support as often as they need it in the supported living program. With the aid of a supported living coach, these individuals can work on more complex skills such as banking, making appointments and learning public transportation.

Ways to Give
As people’s needs keep growing and the cost of delivering critical services keeps rising, Quest couldn’t continue to offer a variety of quality programs without the support of the community. Personal donations, legacy gifts, grants, corporate sponsorships, Quest contract jobs, in-kind gifts, volunteer and Ambassador hours, and participation in our events are all ways you can contribute to Quest.
